Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Grammaticalization refers to the change whereby lexical terms and constructions serve grammatical functions in certain linguistic contexts and, once grammaticalized, continue to develop new grammatical functions. Paul Hopper and Elizabeth Traugott synthesize research from several areas of linguistics in this revised introduction to the subject. The book includes substantial updates on theoretical and methodological issues that have arisen in the decade since the first edition, as well as a significantly expanded bibliography. Particular attention is paid to recent debates over directionality in change and the role of grammaticalization in creolization. First Edition Hb (1993): 0-521-36655-0 First Edition Pb (1993): 0-521-36684-4

Synopsis:

The second edition of this general introduction to grammaticalization has been thoroughly revised with substantial updates on theoretical and methodological issues, and includes a significantly expanded bibliography. Particular attention is paid to recent debates over directionality in change and the role of grammaticalization in creolization.

Synopsis:

This is the first general introduction to grammaticalization, the process whereby ordinary lexical items--nouns and verbs--change over time into grammatical elements such as case markers, sentence connectives, and auxiliaries, and whereby grammatical elements in general come into being and decay. The authors synthesize work from several areas of linguistics, including historical linguistics, discourse analysis, and pragmatics. Data is drawn from many languages including Ewe, Finnish, French, Hindi, Japanese, Malay, and especially English.
